Milaha, a Qatar-based maritime transport and logistics conglomerate, has launched a direct feeder service between Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Colombo and Chittagong will be the seventh and eighth new ports of call for Milaha this year, and are part of the significant service expansion since the beginning of 2017.

The new service, called BCX, is operated via two vessels of 1,200 TEUs capacity and follows a Colombo-Chittagong-Colombo rotation with a transit time of 5 days. The service will cater to the general consumer goods and garments industry in Bangladesh.Milaha’s President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said: “We have seen a great response to the direct and fast services that we launched between Qatar and some key South Asian markets earlier this year, and this has encouraged us to continue our strategic expansion into new markets.”
